How do you carry kids on a Yuba Mundo? When are they old enough?
The Yuba Mundo can be configured to accommodate children of all ages – from babies to toddlers, rug rats to tweens, and beyond.
In general, the American Medical Association recommends that children can be transported on a bike in a child seat, such as the Yepp Maxi, from when they can hold their head upright (about 12 months or 20 pounds) to about 36 months or 36 pounds. To give parents more security, we made sure it will accommodate kids up to 48 months old or 48 lbs. That being said, children get bigger faster or slower, and are ready to move to sitting on the Soft Spot at different ages. It really depends on the temperament of the child.
The next set up after the Peanut Shell would be setting up the Mundo with Wheelskirts, a Leg Up, Soft Spots, and either Monkey Bars or a Hold On Bar. If you’re taking a lot of short trips with a lot of ons and offs, then Hold on Bars are ideal, if you have two or more kids to haul longer distances, and they like to interact with (tickle) each other or fall asleep, the Monkey Bars are more ideal.
Once the kids get to be a bit bigger, and their feet can reach the Sideloaders, you probably will want to get Running Boards or a Running Board and a Towing Tray. A Rumble strap can be added for increased security after they’ve outgrown the Monkey Bars.
